Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

So, a couple of weeks ago, the highly anticipated ACOFAS was released, and I definitely got swept up in the hype. I’ve avoided reviewing books from this series, but I’m going to try my best to write up a review for this novella!

note: I will be reviewing this for what it is – a novella bridging the first trilogy to the next set of books set in this world. When ACOFAS was announced, we knew it’d be a novella, not another huge novel – and at 270 pages, it’s still a fairly long novella!

PS. this review WILL contain spoilers for ACOFAS.

To All the People I’ve Loved Before

Hey guys! So after an unexpectedly long break from posting where we made a huge bulk order for our store and went on holiday, we’re (hopefully) back to our usual posting.

I was actually inspired by Grace’s post to write this, although mine ended up turning out quite different to hers. Trying to reminisce about my romantic encounters pulled up a story I didn’t realise I was ready to tell.

“If we lived forever, maybe we’d have time to understand things. But as it is, I think the best we can do is try to open our eyes, and appreciate how strange and brief all of this is.”

What Remains of Edith Finch is a mystery adventure and walking simulator video game developed by Giant Sparrow. It is a collection of strange tales about a family in Washington state narrated by the last surviving member, Edith Finch. Although each of the family member’s tales are told in different and unique ways, they are all told in first-person perspective and all end with their deaths.  Continue reading “Video Game Review // What Remains of Edith Finch”

Behind the Blogger Part II – Katy Belle

Lauren Evie (3)

I came across Katy’s Twitter account and therefore, blog, a few months back when another blogger promoted her. If you know me, you know I’m not a huge follower of fashion bloggers. Although I admire them greatly, I’m not into fashion and wear the same thing pretty much every day. Despite Katy being a fashion blogger, she is also a lifestyle blogger and I love her think pieces. Overall, regardless of what style of blogging you’re into, I think you’ll find something you like on Katy Belle’s blog! Here are some questions I asked her –  Continue reading “Behind the Blogger Part II – Katy Belle”

Stranger Series

IMG_5911

Not a lot of people know this but Becky and I actually met many years ago on the photography site, Flickr. She was hosting a print giveaway, I entered and was one of the winners. I had to contact her with my postal address and the rest is history, and a lot of Facebook messages. Despite Becky being an actual photographer, I have dabbled in it for a few years and in those years, I have photographed a lot of strangers. I’m not a natural in front of the camera and my social anxiety doesn’t mix with asking people to pose in photographs with me so sometimes I just find strangers who are in the perfect place at the right time and take a snap.
I’ve started this series over on my Instagram and have just called it The Stranger Series. Here is the first part in the blog version and I hope you like them! Continue reading “Stranger Series”

International Women’s Day 2018 //

International Women’s Day 2018 //

Today, 8th of March 2018, is International Women’s Day and as two (raging) feminists, we couldn’t let this day pass without dedicating a blog post to it. We played around with a few different ideas but finally decided on a list of recommendations for all things girl power. We hope you find something you like but more importantly, celebrate the day of the woman in whatever way you can! Continue reading “International Women’s Day 2018 //”
